I finished accutane but....

Recommended Posts

Okay, so i have not been on this website in a while! Since, April looks like.

Well over the course of accutane everything was well worth it, the trips, the blood tests, the patchy hand side effects... My skin was clear! (By clear i mean my red marks were still there but my acne was gone!) hadnt gotten a pimple in so long it felt so good and i felt so confident.

however, i just finished my last pill a few days ago and i am starting to worry. well my face has been breaking out... i was using phisoderm face wash which is for sensitive skin and has no alcohol, fragrance, etc.. but then i discarded it because maybe it was related to that? even though i had been using it during the last month of accutane and i didnt get a side effect.. then i switched to olay for sensitive skin.. and my face is breaking out some more.. its not normal. i am so scared. is it the face wash?? ive tried like every face wash, it seems like they all make me break out... I mean, would it be such a bad thing to just throw water on my face every morning and just take off my makeup with the cleansing cloths (which have never made me break out)... ? do I HAVE to have a face wash?? Ahhh help... suggestions???

If you think your skin will handle it, maybe wash your face a couple times a weeks with a AHA/BHA cleanser.. Thats what I'm going to do once my oil returns
